I know it's hot 'super loving hot' but I never learn my lesson with habanero sauce. Spiced up 1/2 cup of crappy restaurant salsa with a spoonful of this stuff, paid for it the rest of the night.

Marie Sharps is indeed the best, I was introduced to it on a trip to Belize and it is literally the ketchup of that country, it is on every table.

Same, I had the fortune of staying just down the road from where they bottle it, and while their green habanero isn't very spicy, it's delicious with every food.

I have a bottle of this one at home.

The first time I used it, it was straight up in some sandwich. I must have drank like 2L of milk afterward because it was to hot for me.

I have since then tried it in lower quantities in other stuff, but it was still to spicy. I found out the proper usage for it, add it in lower quantities in sauces or yogourt marinade. It works quite well with those.

I think some part of me is dead inside. the green is hotter than the red, and I can just eat tablespoons of that stuff at a time without breaking a sweat. it's been a point of discussion with my girl and I recently, I keep on making dishes way hotter than normal she claims, and I've been insisting it's all the same. I don't know wtf. that brand makes some delicious hot sauces tho.

I also like it in a vinaigrette where it will bring some spice and not compete with the other seasoning.

This is exactly what I do, except I don't even include the oil. I just use Tabasco as salad dressing, and it works really well for me. I don't really enjoy salad, so having a sauce with flavor and nothing bad for you in it except salt is great.

Here is a question, I love mustard-based bbq sauces but I have never made one I am happy with. Can anyone recommend a good bottled brand for me to try? It's pulled pork season and I need something to get me started.

Matouk's calypso sauce is my favourite. It has a great heat from scotch bonnets with a nice sweeet mustardy flavour. I guess it's a caribbean style sauce.

meeeeh on calypso sauce. I've not yet found anything I like it on. I could be biased because when I first tried it I was expecting just a straight scotch bonnet yellow sauce and got smashed in the face with mustard.

Well it is, y'know, a mustard-based sauce... like he was asking for recommendations for. That's just the style of sauce in parts of the Caribbean.

Sorry guys, I'm just a donut.


For the last sixth months or so, I've been really enjoying this sauce. I love it on pretty much any savory dish, on account of my philistine culinary preferences. It is known to contain unacceptably high levels of lead and pesticides, and I wish to be able to make my own facsimile at home that does not possess these weaknesses. I've googled "habanero sauce recipe" repeatedly, but they're invariably over two-thirds carrots, one-quarter water, and with trace amounts of other ingredients. I just want to know how to make a sauce that tastes like it's angry at me (but not Dave's Gourmet angry at me) but won't cause me permanent plumbism. Any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks, and have a good night.

edit: Savory dish, not non-savory dish, obviously. I ain't slathering it on Ben & Jerry's.

I make a bottle of this garlicky ghost pepper sauce every year. It's mostly fresh habaneros with a few ghost peppers for extra kick but you could just substitute more habaneros for those. I add a couple of canned chipotles to the mix for a nice smoky flavour. It has a great flavour and a few drops are enough on almost anything. I find it tastes best after a couple of weeks in the fridge and will stop settling after a while if you give it a shake regularly.

e: I also love yucateca habanero sauce and was sad to hear about the lead levels. my homemade stuff is a pretty good substitute in my opinion.

I picked up a bottle of this for sixty-seven-goddamn cents on account of this thread. Normal suburban supermarket but by chance it has the Mexico-style pour cap instead of the shaker cap, which is handy since I'm basically pouring it straight down my throat.

Thanks, going to a gourmet market today and hopefully they'll have fresh or dried ghost chillies and anything else I need for that recipe.. Unfortunately, I'm still gonna be using a bottle of kutbil-ik de habanero in the chili con carne/chili verde hybrid I'm making today, as I'm entering it into an amateur cook-off and was told by one of the judges it would be a shoe-in after she tried it. A few tablespoons won't shut down anyone's kidneys or cause the collapse of the Roman Empire, I figure.

No worries if you can't find ghost peppers it would be fine with straight fresh habanero I think. I definitely recommend adding a couple of canned chipotles, though. It really improves the flavour and gives a nice reddish colour too.

Looks like someone's got a case of the mondays!

I haven't seen anyone mention Blair's in this thread yet (or at least there are no images). Blair is mainly known for his Super Hots (>100k scoville sauces) but for those who are looking for a bit more flavor than heat, Blair's Pure Death is my go to sauce. Don't be scared by it's claim that it has Naga Jolakia (ghost chilis) it does, but only in very small concentration. The sauce has a very clean peppery flavor, not too heavy on the vinegar, and not crazy on additional flavorings and spices. There's no murky, bitter extract flavor, like Dave's or Blair's ultra hot sauces, it's just a sweet, peppery, flavor with a little bit of a vinegar kick. I've put it on everything from hotdogs to fried rice and everything in between. Hell, I've even eaten this plane on chips when I had no other salsa. It's absolutely one of the best sauces I've ever had.



If you're looking for something with a similar flavor profile, but still not extract levels of heat, I recommend Trinidad Morgua Scorpion by CaJohn's. It's got tomato in it as well, but the star of the sauce is definitely the peppers/vinegar. It packs a little more heat than the Blair's, and might be too much for hot sauce beginners, but I've been wanting a slightly hotter version of Pure Death for a long time. This sauce is that ticket.

Do you also just nibble on them when you can't be arsed to bring out a knife and a chopping board? So good. I'm hooked to just mixing them finely sliced with a little fish sauce and nothing else, but all that salt...

Is Cholua any cheaper if bought in bulk? I ask because it's my favorite sauce, but at $5 or so for a small bottle, it's absurdly expensive.

I am assuming you are talking about the 5 ounce bottles? If so that's $1 an ounce. You can get it for less than $0.50 an ounce if you buy a half gallon from amazon. http://www.amazon.com/Cholula-Hot-S...eywords=Cholula

Good lord it's just so perfect. Lots of flavor, not tons of heat.

I otherwise douse everything with the regular Cholula or Tapatio.
